    AsSalaamu Aalaykum WarahmatAllah Wabarakatuh,

    1 in 13 million - The only native Japanese Imam in Tokyo

    Population of Japan - 127,000,000
    Population of Tokyo - 13,000,000
    No. of Muslims in Japan (estimate) - 100,000
    No. of Japanese Muslims (estimate) - 10,000
    No. who converted to Islam NOT for marriage(estimate) - 2 or 300
    No. of Japanese Imam's in Japan - 5
    No. of Japanese Imam's in Tokyo - 1

    Abdullah Taqy is the only Japanese Imam in Tokyo.

    A chance meeting with a foreign Muslim 12 years ago in Tokyo's Shibuya district and a life spent studying various religions led him to convert to Islam 3 ½ years ago.
    He completed the Hajj, the worlds largest annual religious pilgrimage, to Mecca in Saudi Arabia 2 ½ years ago at the invitation of the Saudi Arabian government.
    Shortly after, a meeting with the man who started him down his path to Islam 12 years previously led him to becoming the Imam at a small mosque in the Kabukicho area of Tokyo.

    His day job for the past 20 years has been as a tattooist and body piercer.

    He is soft spoken and exudes a calmness and friendliness that one cannot help being affected by.

    He is truly, 1 in 13 million.

    Subhanallah,

    I've watched a video about him before, where he was trying to set up a trip to Hajj for Muslims living in Japan. He's doing great Dawah, Islams slowly growing there Mashallah. Which is saying alot since Japanese people tend to be very strict about religion, like they don't even want to talk about it, so very hard to give Dawah to them.

    But what an amazing story, just by reciting words you have no understanding off, your suddenly guided to the Path of light. Alhamdulillah.

    MashaAllaah InshaAllaah he can give up that tattoo job and find a job worth his while.
    JazakAllaah khayr for sharing.
